    I posted a thread here months back when i got my bank account emptied by someone stealing my debit card number. Still not sure how they did it but they were on the other side of the country.

    My bank called they had put a hold on my card. Somebody charged two cents to a japan account, when it went through they tried to charge again but was shut out.

    Sneaky and smart fuckers whoever figures this shit out.

    Twice this year, I've gotten phone calls from a foreign sounding person, warning me that my PC had a virus detected on Windows, and that it was imperative that they remove it...something to that effect. I should have gotten more information, but I was giggling and asked them how they detected it on my APPLE COMPUTER, and they hung up. The second time, I wasn't here and someone else answered and told me about it. I haven't tried to google this yet, and I didn't get far enough to determine if it was my credit card info, or access to my "Windows PC" to hijack it, or both, that they wanted.
